Abstract

We designed and fabricated high throughput agarose gel micro droplet (GMD) generation device for single cell function analysis. Temperature control of each elements of the device is important issue because of the thermo-oriented sol-gel transfer of agarose gel. Uniform GMD of 50 μm in diameter which is suitable size for cell culturing media is achieved with size deviation less than 1.58% and generation rate of about 190deoplets/sec. Single E.coli cell encapsulation and cultivation for 5 hours are successfully achieved in an agarose GMD.
